4 Qualities to Look for When Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney

If you sustained injuries due to someone else’s negligence or intentional wrongdoing, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim. But if you’re like most people, you’ve never had to file such a claim before, so you might not know what to look for in an attorney. In cities like New York, where there are more than 24,000 lawyers in the City Bar alone, narrowing down the options can be a daunting task.

If you’d like free legal advice regarding your case, turn to The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny. We work on a contingency fee basis, so we don’t charge anything upfront, and you won’t owe any legal fees unless we win your case.

Our accident lawyers have more than 100 combined years of experience in legal practice. Call 212-421-0300 to schedule a free case evaluation with a compassionate personal injury lawyer in New York City.

Let’s explore the qualities that set the best injury attorneys apart from the rest:

  1. Relevant Experience

At The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny, we limit our scope of practice by focusing solely on personal injury cases. That affords our attorneys the opportunity to resolve all kinds of accident claims. From motor-vehicle collisions and medical malpractice to defective products and premises liability, we’ve seen it all, and we have very likely won cases that are similar to yours.

  1. A Track Record of Success

Our lawyers have recovered more than $100 million for clients in successful settlements and verdicts. Led by attorney Richard M. Kenny, who was selected for inclusion in the New York Super Lawyers listing, the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and the Best Attorneys of America, we have a longstanding tradition of holding negligent parties financially accountable for every last dollar.  

  1. A History of Satisfied Clients

Although a reputable lawyer will never guarantee to achieve a particular outcome for a client, past successes can be indicative of future triumphs. And if a firm’s past clients were satisfied with the counsel they received, you can anticipate getting the same attentive, personalized, and strategic guidance. One of the easiest ways to evaluate the quality of representation a law firm provides is by reading online reviews, and The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny has more than 100 5-star reviews on Google.  

  1. Trial Experience

Although most personal injury claims are settled before going to court, there’s always the chance that your case will end up in front of a judge. If that happens, it is essential that you have a lawyer with trial experience by your side. Richard M. Kenny is a battle-tested attorney who has won more than 150 verdicts on behalf of his clients.
